2007 Mercury Mountaineer Premier 4dr SUV AWD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)

Review

We had our Mountaineer for 10 months and 15,000 miles and the experience has been mixed so far. It's our 5th Mountaineer and we love the overall package (exterior size vs. interior space), the powerful V8 engine and the features (Navigation system, great audio system). But we had issues and some couldn't be fixed yet. The 6-speed transmission shifts hards after accelerating from a standstill and was checked twice. Fit and finish is bad, body panels and doors needed adjustment. Fuel mileage is poor at best, we average 13.5 mpg in mixed driving. Handling is worse than with our 2004 Mountainer (18" Michelin tires, don't work well in snow either). Overall no big improvement to the 2004 model.

Favorite Features

Powerful and refined V8 engine, premium audio and navigation system, comfortable front seats with plenty of space (I'm 6'6" tall), good cargo capacity, fairly priced for the equipment level offered on the premium package

Suggested Improvements

Overall fit and finish (inside and out), cheaper materials inside compared to 2004 model!), gas mileage, ride & handling (drives like a GMC Envoy), fake aluminum wheels / covers start to deteriorate, more 12V power outlets, cover for crevices in cargo floor with all seats folded flat, transmission.
